After updating SAP with a patch. The driver started reporting the following error "User Query failure: com.novell.nds.dirxml.driver.sapusershim.BapiExcep tion: You have not logged onto the central system"
SAP UA System is "SAP Version 700 SP20" (This patch started causing the issue)


The patch changed the way SAP reports LocActGroupsRead.
New: LocActGroupsRead return TYPE: E 
Old:  LocActGroupsRead return TYPE: S
The current solution is to remove CUA-related attributes from the filter if the servers being connected do not utilize CUA.  The problem attributes are "LOCACTIVITYGROUPS" and "LOCPROFILES".  Filtering them out will only work if the query has a list of specific attributes to read.  This is being tracked in defect Bug 615135

system.  This note applies to functions BAPI_USER_LOCACTGROUPS_READ
